Silent Matinees: American Slapstick | Spring 2017

March 30, 2017 12 - 2pm

 

Professor Vito Adriaensens presents a five-part silent cinema matinee series with live music by Belgian jazz musician Adriaan Campo and friends. The fourth part is dedicated to the pitfalls and pratfalls of four of America’s best silver screen comedians. Buster Keaton outdoes Mary Pickford by performing not one but all roles in The Play House. Harold Lloyd conquers skyscrapers and death in Never Weaken. Charley Chase and his wife cheat on each other with each other in Mighty Like a Moose. And the outlandish genius Charley Bowers tells a tall tale with stop motion in Now You Tell One.
